Hi there! My personal thanks to Trudy Leonhardt for the superb party she
put together; my thanks to all the great people who showed up.

Pooh, here's a great big hug -- uUUumMMmmppPPHHHh!

Ooblick, you're swell! You get a hug too.

Rich (Rosen!), you're a wild guy. Wish you'd take a swing at some
of our more pervasive social institutions; the towel of Turneep doesn't need
you. Oh, and we missed the chance to tie you (upside down) to the Railroad
tracks! Hope you enjoyed the cheeseburger! (You probably don't want a hug.)

Thanks to Griz, the cook, cleanup, and just about everything else,
to Ed Horch, audio consultant, and to Trudy's understanding housemates.

For the not involved, the guest list ran to somewhere between 60
and 90 -- we lost count, and not everyone signed in. The soup came out
real well ;^) and we didn't get busted. (Neither did my speakers ... a
small miracle!)

I'm exhausted, and I'm going to bed. Let's do this again sometime!

As Griz would say, love ya' all.

Well, now that Mark's started the subject line, I might
as well add my thanks to Trudy (actually her evil twin,
as Trudy never made the party). I really enjoyed meeting
everyone, including Rich Rosen, who I met 13 times. The only
problems were that Pooh left early, and a lot of people arrived
late (I mean, how are we supposed to read your name tags in the
dark? Even if they did all say Rich Rosen). Oh, and poor Ed Horch
never did get Channel 4 to show up. :-)

Thanks also to ol' Griz and Laura Watson for (seemingly, at least)
doing all the cooking. And to whoever thought to include the
Foster's in the last beer run.

A few highlights:

A demonstration of Pooh and Mikki's "technique", complete with
"recruiting" sign. (I could read, and was therefore disqualified
from consideration. Sigh.) Was it really necessary to take those
guys' clothes off to fit them into the trunk? I still didn't get
to see Pooh's "Kik-Mi-Do" kata...

Kee serenely spending at least a half hour disecting and reassembling
an Uzi water gun. And not a single attack hit him in all that time--amazing.
Why can't we have cease fires like that in the rest of the world?
Never DID get that sucker working right, though.

Laura with a Beer Shampoo--egg next, right? She also revealed she was
familiar with the concept of head, although I refuse to disclose in what
context.

Never ONCE saw Matt Crawford wearing anything that wasn't soaking wet.

And I warned Mel that if she picked up a water gun, she was just going
to make herself a target. She didn't listen. (Unless she WANTED to be
a target :-)) Caught in the crossfire...

Laura also mentioned to me how they tried cutting the (foot-high) grass
for the party. She failed to explain how we were supposed to play volleyball
on a hill. Or what they did with the grass after they "harvested" it.

And Mikki, I think you may attract more prospects if you spell the sign
"Bellcore Rekrooting" so they can at least pronounce it. And I wish
you'd learn to spell your own name correctly, fercrissakes...

My clone seconds that. I third that. Motion carried. :-)

[Mark mentions specific people. More seconds and thirds.]

Let's not forget Matt Crawford and his *ingenious* direction
signs that a) got everybody there that was supposed to be and
b) confused the hell out of any random passers-by!

Nor your colored lights - a bigger miracle!

Also, thanks loads to all who participated in Sunday's -ahem-
modified Twister game. A good time was had by all.

All in all, a resounding success. Thanks again, Trudy!

P.S. My clone tells me that the bruises and scrapes he received while
being given various self-defense demonstrations are healing nicely.

Don't forget Ken Kaufman and Henry Mensch's evil twins either!

I should have left the cooking to Griz and Laura since I burned my
arms to death trying to cook the hamburgers for breakfast.

/jordan got the Foster's. Isn't he a smart boy?

>Never ONCE saw Matt Crawford wearing anything that wasn't soaking wet.

Same with Curtis Jackson, except right before he left.

Quote of the "morning after", remembered (unfortunately), by Ken
Kaufman:

"Are we going to do it on the kitchen table"?

(I'm not telling who said it.)

But in better news, folks, we're having ANOTHER party, here in BOSTON!
Yes, thanks to the party-loving spirit of Henry "Forget the Club Soda
Because I Really Have a Weak Spot for Australian Beer" Mensch, this
tradition of bizarre party habits will continue well into the fall.
Stay tuned for details.

Thanks again, Trudy!

Sorry, Scott -- where were you when Matt (I think) heaved a water
balloon at me and got my arm and most of Kee's shirt? Dissecting
water Uzis is fun, though..... and I had a great time with Hobbit's.
Matt and Laura finally surrendered -- I think.

Please, folks, there is no need to distribute this stuff world-wide.
I'm sure it was a very nice party, and I wish I could have gone, but
it's a long walk from LA.

Please don't waste so much of the Net's resources on local chit-chat!

Thanks.

By golly, folks, he's got a point. All this talk about the eastern fun is
just making the rest of the net feel wistful.

My evil incarnate twin wanted to come to the party, too. I know he
really would have loved to burst out of somebody's chest at the party, but
it's so hard to drive with those 8 spindly legs...and he goes through a
small fortune in silicone brake fluid just lurking about my ethernet, let
alone traveling to the east coast! Seriously, we're glad you had a good
party, just jealous.

Who invited *my* evil twin? He didn't tell me? Was he fun?

What Shelli forgot to tell here was that she and /jordan *forgot*
the club soda. Of course, I had to *settle* for the Foster's ...
